Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely peaceful stay We booked this hotel due it's location and it being quiet, peaceful and calm. The room was huge (superior room) and the bathroom was of a large size too. I like that in the room you are provided with an information book. The room had all the amenities needed; large safe, extra blanket, ironing board and iron, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryer and small toiletries. Every morning they restocked the bottles of water and the teas and coffees if we used them. We were provided with slippers but unfortunately no dressing gown. As there wasn't much shelf space in the wardrobe it would have been nice to have a few more hangers. The bed was very comfy and huge. I absolutely loved that there was a pillow menu on the bed. Listing the different pillows you can have for your sleep and were to find them. All staff members were great, they were friendly and attentive. We had an issue with the shower head, so informed staff at reception and this issue was solved promptly. Our room and the rest of the hotel were clean and well maintained. The breakfast room was of a good size with large windows at one end so you can sit and watch the golfers while you eat. The breakfast was delicious. Depending on the number of guests, some mornings we helped ourselves to the cooked breakfast and other mornings the chef would cook breakfast. You are able to help yourself to the cereals  yoghurt, bread, pastries and juices. The quality of the food was very good and we looked forward to eating our breakfast every morning. We had a great stay here and are so pleased we chose this hotel.

We are 4 experienced travelling golfers and have just spent a couple of splendid days at Sandford Springs. We are regular visitors here, but would say that this was our best visit yet. The staff were superb and extremely attentive. Our dinners were cooked beautifully, and we are highly experienced diners! Thank you and well done to the team there. Oh the golf courses were in extraordinarily good condition, considering the horrendous weather this winter.

One of the best experiences we had in years. Family wedding so lots to prepare and sort out. Nothing was too much trouble for the whole team of people from hotel staff to the wedding Chapel and the reception. The smallest problems were solved quickly with no fuss and helped to make the wholee event a wonderful experience. Special mention must go to Robin who made the whole process a really relaxing and enjoyable process. His attention to detail and reassuring manner was superb, his team are a superb bunch of people. The hotel rooms are really fabulous and any request to the staff was dealt with in a timely manner. Breakfast was an absolute delight, staff were smiling and very efficient. The food was freshly cooked and very well presented, a great selection of pastries fruit and yogurts available made for a really good experience. The wedding reception area was beautifully decorated and the staff were absolutely brilliant, nothing was too much trouble for them and this enhanced the whole event. I would recommend this venue to anybody thinking of a wedding event.

Stayed here in winter and hotel was fine. Good location for visiting surrounding area. Rooms are nice and big and parking is no issue. Breakfast is a decent full English. There is no gym or other facilities apart from the golf. We went to the restaurant on our first night which is a sports bar type atmosphere and not the most welcoming staff. Would recommend travelling into the pubs in Kingclere instead.

I’m not a regular when it comes to reviews but i felt compelled to warn people of this venue. Perhaps the best way to describe this venue and club policies compared to 200+ other golf clubs I’ve played across the world is “Commercial Animals” and s-d the customer. We moved our T-Time on 3 occasions. When visiting the first time, the course was as good as waterlogged (Dec 2023). We played 2 holes and returned to the pro shop. Based on the conditions, i don’t know many clubs that would have opened. The pro shop credited our round and we re-booked but we were advised that we would need to play (no matter what) within 2 months. We returned today and once again, it was unplayable. Hard/frosted greens. The Pro Shop did not advise of frosted greens (impossible to flight/stop the ball) when contacting same day. Best was to describe overall condition of the course…”Spit & Sawdust.” It’s all well and good “packin then in” but surely not at all costs. One to definitely avoid

Thank you for your feedback. I am delighted to read that the pro shop gave you a complimentary fourball to return when the weather was not on your side. Especially after already been most accommodating in moving your tee times on three prior occasions. But frozen greens when it is -5 outside and wet conditions underfoot following heavy rain is really what to expect with winter golf. While many of our competitors were under water at this time and/or use winter greens and tees, Sandford Springs is very proud of the fact that we play on real greens and tees all year round. Yes of course it plays better in the summer but that is why we offer very different rates for winter golf. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your rounds on this occasion, but please do return when the sun is shining.

First time my family and I have had Christmas dinner away from home and we were not disappointed. Despite working Christmas Day all the staff were smiling, very friendly and genuinely seemed happy and enjoying their jobs. The food was amazing, especially the roast potatoes which normally are a let down when I eat out. The service was great, despite being busy we did not wait long for our food. The canapés and lemon sorbet were also amazing and a nice treat as I was not expecting them. The lovely waitress even managed to get one of my children to try them which surprised me, better luck with the other one next year 😊 I could not fault a single thing and already looking forward to next year’s dinner.

We are NHS staff and retirees,and this year decided to have our annual Cristmas dinner and dance at Sandford Springs Hotel. We were welcomed at the door with staff taking our coats,and giving us a glass of prosecoo. Then Matthew John showed us to our table. It was extremely busy but the staff were excellent all the way through the evening. The food was delious. Then the dncing began and the floor was big enough to accomodate everyone. We have in the past been disapointed by the size of previous dance floors. See you next year.

It's the first time I've been a guest of this hotel. I had some business locally and decided to book here as I have read good reviews. And the reviews were right. Nice chic hotel, very generous free parking. One of the best things I liked here is that the restaurant is on the other side of the parking so even if there are events that go late into the evening, the hotel guests are not disturbed by any noise. I have a very shallow sleep and any noise however faint will wake me up. That was not the case for the nights I've stayed here. Beautiful green spaces as much as the eyes can see, 3 golf courses, great landscape. However, there are other hotels with similar great characteristics. What I felt made this hotel special was the attentiveness and helpfulness of all staff, from the start to finish. Professionalism and friendliness second to none of the staff and I would like to mention George from reception (nothing was too much to ask and he gladly helped) and Liga from breakfast that greeted me with a beautiful smile and after the first day remembered exactly what I have ordered and how I wanted them done and she made sure everything is 100% as I like it even without having to say it. They are both an asset to the hotel. Again, my warmest regards to George and Liga for making this stay so pleasant, I will surely return here.
